    Patriarch Irie - Poison Explosion Necromancer

    Introduction/Overview
    Poison Explosion: wonderful in theory, terrible in practice. Despite its ridiculous damage figures, Poison Explosion is vastly outperformed by its brother in crime. One of the major reasons for this? The terrible radius.

    Remedy #1: Bone Prison
    Result: Little chambers separating monsters by a hair over the radius of PE is just what I wanted. ...wait.

    Remedy #2: Fire Golem
    Result: As expected, everything in the area is clumping around... *dies*

    Remedy #3: Attract
    Result: Success! Sort of.

    That short clip should give you a rough idea of the playstyle involved. Annoying? A little, but it was also kind of amusing to group things together with Attract/Fire Golem, then open the floodgates over a small cloud of poison. The damage was incredible, as you can probably see, and it was certainly a fun build around large groups, assuming they weren't unbreakable poison immune. *shudder*

    Aside from immunes, single enemies (especially ranged ones) were generally passed over. No sense in stressing yourself out for no good reason, right? As for bosses, Andariel, Mephisto, and Diablo were easy, if a little annoying as far as getting the positioning correct. Duriel and Baal required Clay Golem support and just a whole lot of patience, while the 'Rift' mercenary did the trick. The Ancients were even slower, as Life Tap was absolutely necessary to keep the mercenary alive. No comment on how long it took to kill one who spawned CI, although the severe drop in killspeed tells me that 'Rift' was even more damaging than expected. In any case, let's just say I had to back away from the computer to avoid the urge to use Poison Nova. :badteeth:

    Wrapup
    Short and sweet this time around, no thanks to the forum downtime just now killing my first attempt at posting. :p Not a very complicated build, nor one I could easily recommend for anything other than a good time, assuming you consider this kind of build "fun". :crazyeyes: His only notable finds were a Captain's GC of Sustenance, Laying of Hands, and a Mal rune from the forge.

    No real plans for this guy in the future, unfortunately. I don't like to respec these kinds of characters for PvP, although he could probably participate to some degree just by swapping to Poison Nova (or tricking someone to move over a zombie's rotting corpse? :D).

    Thanks to maareek for the majority of the items (about time I did something useful with them, huh?), as well as to CM for the tasty boots (and possibly a charm or two?). Thanks also to slowMG for always killing me with poison, motivating me to make a high damage greenie of my own. :(

    Re: Patriarch Irie - Poison Explosion Necromancer

    Congrats on the build. :) It was amusing watching you bait Diablo to the corpses. And you should know by now that forum downtime occurs around this hour. :badteeth:

    What program are you using to record your videos by the way?

    Re: Patriarch Irie - Poison Explosion Necromancer

    You used ONLY poison explosion all the way to the end of the game? That's crazy!

    My own necromancer(nm act2) uses poison explosion alot, but combines it with nova and dagger. Did you try to get the merc to tank, make a corpse, and just make a poison explosion chain from there?

    That was something to behold, for sure. I can't ever imagine myself having the concentration/dexterity to do what you did in that video, and not die in the process o_O

    Seriously, major congratulations on this! And I have to ask, what songs were those in the video?

    Re: Patriarch Irie - Poison Explosion Necromancer

    SlowMG: Forum downtime is something scheduled? :crazyeyes:

    Pijus: That works fine too, for the most part. The mercenary uses 'Rift' though, so his ability to have success against large packs is limited, and the goal was to get as many monsters as possible in the area to have to successfully use Poison Explosion as little as possible. :wink:

    Suzunahara: Thanks! I'd wager that the majority of the members around here are much better at playing than I am though, and that you could easily pull that off given the chance. :) The first song is Thousand Enemies by Girls Dead Monster (Angel Beats!), and the second is my favorite: Miageru Ano Sora de by Yuuki Aira (sola).

    You cured my desire to build a PE Necro! ;)

    Congrats on finishing it!

    Re: Patriarch Irie - Poison Explosion Necromancer

    Congrats!
    Even before that video, i had no desire whatsoever to make a PEmancer only.
    I bow to your dedication.

    With that said, the only characters i know named Irie are the ones from Itazura na Kiss, but a quick search gave me also a female character from Angel Beats. Safe to assume it's taken from there? (considering you used music from it as well)

    Re: Patriarch Irie - Poison Explosion Necromancer

    I got a huge kick out of the part where Diablo bone prisoned the fire golem and then fire walled it. Brilliant!

    About time, indeed! ;p Sweet char, with a ton of stylepoints. Excellent job of creating a plan to maximize the effectiveness of the skill. I can imagine how this one played, even without the video, and I must say I'm impressed with your patience yet again. Enigma has to help, though. ;)

    For the last ~2 weeks, forum downtime has occured for me around 1:30am - 2:30am, daily, without fail. For you, that'll be like 10:30pm - 11:30pm. You didn't notice?

    Poison Explosion only...*shudder*. I love how it took a minute to lure Diablo out of his pentragram pillow fort. Congrats.

    Re: Patriarch Irie - Poison Explosion Necromancer

    Thanks all.

    potter: I actually haven't watched Angel Beats!, or at least not much of it. :badteeth: Irie (of unknown given name?) from Higurashi. It was the only semi-fitting thing I could come up with.

    maareek: :D Nice catch. Didn't notice Diablo abusing the Fire Golem. As far as 'Enigma', it was indispensable as far as my playstyle was concerned, but it took a few NDEs to learn that Fire Golem ALSO teleports when you do. :whistling:

    Grats on the completion of you poisonmancer nagisaFurukawa. Don't think I'd want to try it anytime soon though. :thumbsup:
